What is the difference between Stumpy Nubs and the Townsend brothers? While you’re pondering that unbelievable brain teaser, ask yourself what is the best tool you own that cost less than $4 new, and try to picture Stumpy cutting his hair with a lawn mower. Those are just some of the things you’ll find in the latest episode of Blue Collar Woodworking! When you’re done, visit the Stumpy Store for detailed plans of our Bench-top-biscuit-machine.

Pine Shaker Closet Dresser #3: Drawers, the "Fruit of the Loom", size matters

02-26-2012 08:44 PM by PaBull | 5 comments »

“Size matters on drawers” Time to get down to the drawers. It’s kinna like getting into the underwear (not in a dirty way) of the cabinet. Call it the “Fruit of the Loom?”.When making drawers, size matters, so I will work on getting every 1/8” I can (or mm for you, Europeans). The first step is making the face frame thin. Or in this case, no face frame, just 3/4” thick dividers. European style cabinets are a good way to do this, I just don’...

Pine Shaker Closet Dresser #1: Designing and materials

02-20-2012 05:52 PM by PaBull | 14 comments »

We finished building our house in 2008, but there are all those little projects that you have to set yourself to get done or it will never happen. In addition to getting side tracked, the shop (garage) or what ever you call it, starts to fill as storage. The amount of things that need fixing keeps stacking up too. But today is the day we start a new project. I need to build a dresser that will fit right in my closet, between the vertical pine members, just the way we planned it 4 years ...

Drawer Front Jig

01-17-2012 04:06 AM by pastorglen | 2 comments »

One of the challenges I faced on my recent bed project was getting my drawer fronts to all line up the same. I left very little room for error, and, since I had two rows of three drawers on each side, I really wanted all the drawer fronts to be “covered and aligned.” The solution: a good jig. Below are four pictures of two different jigs I used. The first three are for aligning the drawer front to the drawer box. I basically built two “U”s. The first U was the ...

Work In Progress #5: Canasta Final Part

11-22-2011 07:31 PM by Byron | 2 comments »

So heres the finished thing. You can see it open in the pictures on the bottom. Better pictures soon to come. The drawers are an important part of my design because of my mother. When I was younger she taught my older brother and myself how to play canasta, and always had two nice decks of cards to play, unfortunately we were not the cleanest while playing and the cards almost always got ruined. Eventually she started to hide the cards. It came to the point where she would burry the c...

Work In Progress #4: Canasta Part 4

11-22-2011 07:29 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So here it is, the final glue up. I over clamped to be safe, not in the sense of clamping pressure but as far as where I was clamping. This glue up entailed gluing all 4 sets of tails and pins with the mitered front (all the same piece) of the carcass as well as gluing in the center of the floating panel. By glueing the center of the panel I control the movement of expansion and contraction to both edges, ensuring the gaps always stay very close to the same, also keeping them as smal...

Board Game Travel Case #7: Completed the case.

09-08-2011 11:34 AM by ChadR | 2 comments »

I have finally completed the case. What took so long was making each drawer. Because I am still new to woodworking I make little mistakes here and there. These mistakes made it impossible to cut out all the pieces for each drawer in uniform size. I had to custom size each drawer. I have none the less completed them all have moved all of my board games into the case, which fits perfectly. I am going on a road trip and will be bringing my new case with me. So the case will be getting a real tes...

Board Game Travel Case #5: Back to the drawing board, again.

09-03-2011 09:58 AM by ChadR | 5 comments »

Well I had to go back and re design the case once again. I got a comment from Mark Shymanski asking if the boards to these games fit in the case. I of course went and got my board games to test the fit out and realized that a few of them where a bit larger then the case. I had originally designed the case to have enough space between the closed drawers and the sliding front to fit large boards. But in the process of making the case I forgot about this detail. I decided I would go back and ...
